Good family villa in Alvor

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we all had a great holiday at your villa. The garden space and the pool were perfect, especially for the children, plenty of room for them to play. It is ideally placed for a stroll into town for a meal and we also made use of the BBQ. The car rental which you organised for us was excellent, thank you. All in all we had a lovely time (thank you for including the good weather in the price 😎) we have already told friends and family how nice it was.

Fabulous Villa and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 6 we were so impressed by the villa. It was so well equipped and had everything we could possibly need. During our stay we met both the cleaner and the gardener who were both friendly. I could not fault how well maintained the villa, pool and gardens were kept.

Gerrard the owner of the villa very kindly organised our taxi both to and from the villa as I said that we didn't wish to hire a car. The journey both ways was completely hassle free.

The villa is in a quiet area and only a 10 minute walk to the local supermarket. We popped there most days to get fresh bread etc for lunch. In the evenings we generally walked into Alvor/ Harbour (about 20 mins) where we ate out in many different restaurants, all of which were reasonably priced and served excellent food.

The beach was beautiful too.

To sum up, the whole holiday, was extremely relaxing, stress free and a lovely place to be as quiet or as busy as you like. We all loved it!

Relaxing family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Our Family (4 adults and two 7 year old girls) stayed in Ceu Pequeno in July and August 2015. We love our villa holidays and this one was definitely one of the best we've stayed in . It's spacious and extremely well equipped, with everything you might need provided. There are three large bedrooms, one en-suite, plus a bathroom and an additional shower room. There is also a room with children's bunk beds, plus a cot. The outside space is large and gorgeous, and the pool is a good size too (our girls made great use of it). There are also two separate seating areas and a built in barbecue. The photos really don't do it justice, it's so lovely.

The villa is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and is about a fifteen minute walk to the local Pingo Doce supermarket. Alvor town centre is about another ten minute walk. The fabulous beaches are on the other side of town and although we used the car to get there, I expect it would take about 35 minutes to walk. Pingo Doce is a busy, reasonably priced supermarket, with a great selection of fresh fruit, veg, meat, and fish, as well as it's own bakery.

There are a couple of restaurants within about ten minutes walk if you don't want to venture far. We tried Al Capone, near the campsite and it was very good, especially the pizzas.

Airport transfers (Carlos Santana) and car hire (Polo) were both kindly arranged by Gerard, the villa owner, and both companies were very polite, punctual, and helpful. There's also a bus service but we didn't quite manage to work out the route or the timetable, but the taxis are very reasonably priced and can be booked by phone to pick up at the villa. During our stay, we visited nearby Lagos twice ( stunning), Praia de Rocha and Zoomarine and would recommend them all. Zoomarine was a great family day out, but mega busy, so get there early if you can.

The owner Gerard, is very helpful, making the admin side of the holiday straightforward and hassle free, and we would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing family holiday and a great base to explore the area.
